I put too much salt in the spaghetti pasta, any advice?
I was thinking of adding water but I like the sauce to be thick

Drop a chunk or 2 of soft bread in for a few minutes, some of the salt should come out when the bread is taken out, I believe years ago, A chunk of potato [peeled] had the same effect. It's worth a try?.

It depends on how salty it is. If it is just a little too salty you can make more of the same recipe without salt. To finds this out without wasting too much you can take a little bit and see how much it takes tor a t that little bit.then use the same proportions for a larger amount. You can always freeze the extra amount for later use.

If it were me I would toss it because oversalted food can't be saved unless you add more of the same without salt. And it's really hard to tell how much more you need to add.

I was going to suggest adding sugar to counter the salty taste but the potato trick actually removes the salt. Speed was the first to suggest this.

My solution for anything that has too much of a certain flavor is to give it more body. For spaghetti sauce, I would use mushrooms to earth it down. For chili/soups/stews, I would use beans, for other things some kind of starch.

Drop a half of an uncooked potato into your salty pasta sauce and say goodbye to over-seasoned sauce

I've never tried this, but I've read it in more than one place.
Peel a potato and cut it into large chunks. Let the sauce simmer with the potato chunks. Remove them before serving. They will have absorbed salt.
If you try it, will you let us know if it worked?
